This year we are at Abbey Home Farm, Burford Road, Cirencester, Gloucestershire GL7 5HF. The purpose of the meeting is four-fold: to give a brief summary of the Alliance’s activities over the previous year. to approve the accounts and the appointment of accountants, as required by our constitution. the election of committee members discuss and vote on a change to the structure of the OGA In addition to the AGM we will be holding a tree planting ceremony at 11:30am in memory of Keith Denning, head grower at Abbey Home Farm for many years, who sadly passed away last year. He made a huge contribution setting up to operation at Abbey Home Farm and organic growing more generally and we hope as many of you as possible will join us in honouring that contribution. We will also be discussing and voting on a change to the constitution which will allow the OGA to raise funds in addition to membership subscriptions. This requires a Special General Meeting (SGM) to be held immediately after the AGM.
